Publisher's Note 



" Childhood Songs" has been prepared to meet a demand for a first-class 
book for the primary department in Sunday-schools and for home use among 
the little folks. It is the outgrowth, in great part, of an experience of several 
years in primary work. Most of its melodies have been subjected to practical 
tests which have demonstrated their adaptedness to the powers and tastes of 
little children. As will be seen, these melodies align themselves with the 
newer music of the day. They will be found on trial to be as simple as they 
are sweet and harmonious. Great attention has been given to the word- as 
well as to the music. The hymns are within the comprehension of the 
\ oungest child, but the truths and sentiments they express are of the highest 
order and in the best form. The editors have done their utmost to combine 
variety with excellence. It is believed that there is not a single page which 
will not be found available and helpful. 

The thanks of the editors and publisher are due and are hereby tendered 
to Prof. I). Batchellor, Thomas G. Shearman, Margaret Bradford Morton, 
Caro A. Dugan, Helen H. Cobb, Lucy Rider Meyer, W. II. Doane, Theo. F. 
Seward, (has. L. Hutchins, T. E. Perkins, The Century Co., The Oliver Dit- 
son Co., and others, for the use of words and music; to Dr. E. II. Johnson 
and Prof. D. Batchellor for valuable suggestions ; and to Rev. E. E. Ayres for 
reading and revising proof.

Songs of Salvation," by T. E. Perkins. 

3 little child, when thou must die, 
Fear nothing then, 
But say, "Amen" 

To God's command, and quiet lie 
In his kind hand, 
In his kind hand. 

Till he shall say, "Dear child, come, fly 
To heaven's bright land. 
To heaven's bright land." 



Copyright, 1870, 

2 O little child, be still and rest, — 
He sweetly sleeps 
Whom Jesus keeps, — 
And in the morning wake so blest, 
1 Ii- child to be, 
His child to be; 
Love every one, but love him best, — 
I It- firsl loved thee, 
He first loved thee.

Calm and sweet repose, 

With thy tenderest blessing 

May our eyelids close. 

3 Grant to little children 

Visions bright of thee ; 
Guard the sailors tossing 
On the deep blue sea.

May thine angels spread 

Their white wings above me, 

Watching 'round my bed.

2 I love to tli ink that thou with holy feet 

My path hast trod, 
Along life's common lane and dusty street 

Hast walked with God. 
On Mary's bosom drawn a baby's breath 
And served thy parents dear at Nazareth. 

3 gentle Jesus, make this heart of mine 

So full of sin) 
As holy, harmless, undefiled as thine 

And dwell t herein. 

Then, God my Father, I, like thee, shall know, 
And grow in wisdom as in strength I grow. 

4 To thee my Saviour, then, with morning Light, 

I Had songs V II raise, 
My Baddest hours and darkest shall be brighl 

With silent praise. 
And should my work or play my thoughts employ, 
Thy will shall be my law, thy love my joy.

2 Thou hast sent the sun to shine 
O'er this glorious world of thine, 
Warmth to give and pleasant glow, 
On each tender flower below. 



3 Now the little birds arise, 
Chirping gaily in the skies ; 
Thee their tiny voices praise, 
In the early songs they raise. 



4 Thou, by whom the birds are fed, 
Give to me my daily bread ; 
And thy Holy Spirit give, 
Without whom I cannot live.

Loving Shepherd of Thy Sheep. 



J. E. Leeson. 

1 Loving Shepherd of thy sheep, 
Keep thy lambs, in safety keep; 
Nothing can thy power withstand; 
None can pluck us from thy hand. 

•J Loving Saviour, thou did'st give 
Thine own life that we might live; 
And the hands outstretched to bless 
Bear the cruel nails' impress. 



Tune. — ''Jesus, Holy, Undefiled." 

We would praise thee every day, 
Gladly all thy will obey, 
Like the blessed ones above, 
Happy in thy precious love. 

Loving Shepherd, ever near, 
Teach thy lambs thy voice to hear; 
Suffer not our steps to stray 
From the straight and narrow way. 



Where thou leadest we would go, 
Walking in thy steps below 
Till before our Father 1 s throne 
We shall know as we are known.

Little hearts may love thee well, 
Little lips thy love may tell, 
Little hymns thy praises swell : 

Hear us, holy Jesus. 
Little lives may be divine, 
Little deeds of love may shine, 
Little ones be wholly thine : 

Hear us, holy Jesus. 
Be thou with us every day, 
In our work and in our play, 
When we Learn and when we pray 

Hear us, holy Jesus. 
When we lie asleep at night, 
Ever may thy angels bright, 
Keep us safe till morning light: 

Hear us, holy Jesus. 



6 May we ever try to be 
From all sinful tempers free, 
Pure and gentle, Lord, like thee : 

PI ear us, holy Jesus. 

7 May our thoughts be undeflled, 
May our words be true and mild, 
Make us each a holy child : 

Hear us, holy Jesus. 

8 Jesus, Son of God, most high, 
Who didst in a manger lie, 
Who upon the cross didst die :

Calling us, in heaven to be

Lay down, thou weary one, lay down 
Thy head upon my breast." 

'_! I came to Jesus as I was 
Weary, and worn, and sad ; 
I found in him a resting-place, 

And he h;is made ine glad. 



Tune. — See Israel's Gentle Shepherd.

"Behold, I freely give 

The living water; thirsty one 
Stoop down and drink, and live." 

4 I came to Jesus, and I drank

My thirst was quenched, my soul revived 
And now 1 live in him.

Jesus, my heart's dear refuge, 

Jesus has died for me;

Wait till the night is o'er : 
Wait till 1 see the morning

The World Looks Very Beautiful, -Concluded. 



Tin but a link- pilgrim, 

M\ itiniK \ ] 1 1 l begun 
They say I shall meet Borrow 

Before my journey's done ; 
The world is lull of sorrow 

And suffering they say; 
But I will follow Jesus 

All the way. 



3 Then, like a little pilgrim. 

Whatever I may meet, 
I'll take it, joy or sorrow, 

And lay at Jesus 3 feel ; 
He'll comfort me in trouble, 

He'll wipe my tears away : 
With joy I'll follow Jesus 

All the way. 



Then trials cannot vex me, 

And pain I need not fear, 
For when I'm close by Jesus, 

Grief cannot come too near; 
Not even death can harm me, 

When death I meet one day 
To heaven I'll follow Jesus 

All the way.

And guides you to th' appointed place,

O Jesus, we would praise thee 

With songs of holy joy; 
For thou on earth didst sojourn 

A pure and spotless boy. 
Make us like thee, obedient, 

Like thee from sin-stains free, 
Like thee in God's own temple, 

In lowly home like thee. 



3 O Jesus, we would praise thee, 

The lowly maiden's Son : 
In thee all gentlest graces 

Are gathered into one. 
O give that best adornment 

That Christian child can wear, 
The meek and quiet spirit 

Which shone in thee so fair. 



4 () Lord, with voices lifted 

AVe sing our songs of praise ; 
Be thou the light and pattern 

Of all our child-hood's days ; 
And lead us ever onward, 

That while we stay below 
We may, like thee, .Jesus, 
In grace and wisdom grow.

Alstone. Concluded, 



When deep within our swelling hearts 
The thoughts of pride and anger rise, 
When hitter words are on our tongues, 

And tears of passion in our eyes, — 
Then may we stay the angry blow, 

Then may we cheek the hasty word, 
Give gentle answers hack again, 

And light a battle for our Lord. 



5 With smiles of peace and looks of love. 

Light in our dwellings we may make 
Bid kind, good-humor brighten there, 
And do all still for Jesus' sake 

6 There's not a child so small and weak, 

But has his little cross to take, 
His little work of love and praise 
That he may do for Jesus' sake.

2 I can not feel thee touch my hand 
With pressure litfht and mild, 
To check me as my mother did, 

When I was but a child : 

But 1 have felt thee in my thoughts, 

Rebuking sin for me ; 
And, when my heart loves God, I know 

The sweetness La from thee.

3 And when, dear Saviour, I kneel down, 
Morning and night, to prayer, 

Something there is within mv heart 
Which tells me thou art there. 

Yes, when 1 pray, thou prayest too: 
Thy prayer is all for me; 

But when 1 sleep, thoil sleepest not, 
Bui watchest patiently.

A pest from every turmoil, 

From sin and sorrow free, 
Where every little pilgrim 

Shall rest eternally.

N<> home on earth is like it,

For every one is happy, 

Nor could be happier there.

And loved his name below.

2 The old man, meek and mild, 
The priest of Israel, slept ; 
His watch the temple-child, 

The little Levite, kept ; 
And what from Eli's sense was sealed, 
The Lord to Hannah's son revealed. 



O give me Samuel's ear, 
The open ear, O Lord, 

Alive and quick to hear 
Each whisper of thy word ; 

Like him to answer at thy call, 

And to obev thee first of all. 



4 O give me Samuel's mind 

A sweet, unmurmuring faith, 
Obedient and resigned 

To thee in life and death ; 
Thai I may read with child-like eyes 
Truths that are hidden from the wise

2 His human name they did proclaim, 

When Abram's son they seal'd him: 
The name that still by God's good will, 
Deliverer revealed him. 

3 And when he hung upon tlie tree, 

They wrote his name above him, 
That all might see the reason we 
For evermore must love him.

Almighty to release us 
From sin and pains, ho gladly reigns,

2 Golden buttercups catching the sunlight, 

AVhile the heavens are blue and fair, 
Then when days are dark and misty, 

Making sunshine everywhere, 
Happy the season that may hold 
Goodly store of your fairy gold. 

3 Hidden away under meadow grasses, 

Like a hint of the far, blue sky, 
If we look close we shall find a blossom 

Right at our feet, so quiet and shy ; 
Quiet and shy, yet what were spring, 
Wanting the violet's offering? 

4 Day by day the happy wild flowers 

Lift their heads to the sun's warm glow, 
Gratefully drink the cooling showers. 

Rocked by the winds, sway to and fro, — 
Then as the night brings shadows deep, 
Drooping their little heads they sleep. 

5 Children dear, if our lives are loving, 

Sweet to all, like the clover here, 
Having the modest grace of violets, 

Pull of the buttercup's sunny cheer, 
We will be God's little human flowers, 
Helping to brighten this world of ours.

4 But the heart that's loving, 
Works of love will do; 
Those who dearly cherish, 
We must honor too ; 

To OUT father's teaching 
Listen day by day, 

And our mother's bidding 
Cheerfully obey. 



For when in his childhood 
( )nr dear Lord was here, 
lie too was obedient 

To his mother dear ; 
And his little children 

Must be good as he, 
Gentle and submissive 

As he used to be.

Who died on the cross, and arose from the grave ; 

Who dwelleth on high in that holy abode, 

Now pleading for man with a sin pardoning God, 

?> Oh ! who would neglect such a volume as this, 
That warns us of danger, invites us to bliss? 
Send forth the blest Bible, earth's regions around 
Wherever the footsteps of man way be found.

There's a bright land far a - way, Where 'tis nev - er end - ing day. 




2 Every spring the sweet, young flowers 

Open bright and gay, 
Till the chilly autumn hours 

Wither them away ; 
There's a land we have not seen, 

Where the tree- are always green. 

3 Little birds sing songs of praise 

All t he summer long, 
Bui in colder, shorter days 

They forget their song ; 
There's a place where angels sing 
l easeless praises to their K ing. 



Christ our Lord is ever near 

Those who follow him ; 
But we cannot see him here. 

For our eyes are dim ; 
There is a most happy place, 
Where men always see his face. 

Who shall go to that fair land? 

All who love the right ; 
Holy children there shall stand 

In their robes of white : 

For that heaven, so bright and blest, 

Is our everlasting rest

Our loving Shepherd stands, 
Tenderly the lambs he calleth 

To those heavenly lands ; 
There within a fold eternal, 

Danger cannot come. 
All who enter in have found 

A blessed home.

And crying is not known,

The joyous tones of Christmas chimes 75 

The little flowers came through the ground 86 

The Lord is our King 107 

There came a little child to earth 66 

There is a green hill far away 81 

There is a happy land 120 

There is a land of pure delight 121 

There is no name so sweet on earth 77 

There's a bird that is flying 93 

There's a fold both safe and happy 110 

There's a Friend for little children ~>4 

There's a song in the air 

143 



The Son oi God goes forth to war 115 

The spring is come 95 

The strife is o'er 83 

The world looks very beautiful 43 

Thou art rny shepherd 59 

Thou didst leave thy throne 79 

Thou, holy Jesus, meek and mild 62 

Thou that once on mother's knee 32 

To and fro, to and fro 113 

We are but little children weak 50 

Wearily at daylight's close 10 

We'll all rise up together. (Motion exercise) 101 

Welcome, hour of gladness 116 

What shall little children bring 71 

When Christ was born 76 

When little Samuel woke 33 

When morning gilds the skies 8 

When o'er earth is breaking 6 

When the little children sleep 13 

Work, for the night is coming 106 

Ye Christian children 102 

Ye shepherds arise 73
